''Little Miss Spider'' is a computer-animated short based on the best-selling book by artist and storyteller David Kirk. For Little Miss Spiders debut as an animated character, digital artists at Kleiser-Walczak pushed the limits of 3D tools as they transformed Kirks vibrant 2D oil paintings into a stylized 3D world. The result is a never-before-seen look in the field of computer graphics.Maya was used for character and scene modeling; animation and rendering. Composer and After Effects were used for compositing. This project was produced for Callaway & Kirk.

The is not for those of you who are "childish"-phobic. So what doesn't have childishness in it? Clutching too tightly to one's perception of adulthood to where one can't have fun without "adult" alcohol and sex is childish unto itself. Suggest to me what good work of art exists that wasn't created by a touch of child-like creativity? Woody Allen flicks?

My daughter loves this story and I was so excited to find it animated.
The graphics are beautiful and exciting, but the woman reading sounds a little bored and tired.
In any case, it's such a beautiful story and animation!
I especially love the ending where Betty is feeding LIttle Miss Spider, giving her a bath and putting her to bed! I'm so glad they included these animations as they are such small little image at the bottom of the page in the book!

It's too much made childish, too colorful, too much kitsch. Also it's nothing I would show my child (if I'd have one).
If you aren't afraid of that you can watch it.
